's the process of assimilation. unlike other nations, our immigration laws were not written to keep people out, they were written to assure those who come here demonstrate a sincere desire to become americans. to acquire a common language, common culture, and commom appreciation of american sthrule principles and american legal traditions. illegal immigration undermines that process of legal immigration that makes our nation of immigrants possible. if we allow illegal immigration, then legal immigration becomes pointless. the process of assimilation that our immigration laws assure breaks down, and the bonds of allegiance that hold a country like ours together begin to dissolve. there is a recent article in the national review which points out earlier immigration bills included a provision calling for, quote, patriotic integration of prospective citizens into the american way of life by providing civics, histories, and english with a special emphasis on attachment to the principles of the constitution of the united states, the heroes of american history, and the meaning of the oath of allegian

government to step in and do something about it. despite the city's tough gun laws, chicago cops are recovering illegal guns at nine times the rate of their counterparts in new york city. that's nearly three times the number of weapons in a city 1/3 the size. these outrageous numbers call for nothing short of a federal response. we need a renewed effort at the federal level to prosecute gun traffickers who put illegal weapons in the hands of gang members. we need to give our law enforcement the tools they need to put these guys away. last year chicago ranked last among federal jurisdictions in federal gun prosecutions. this is simply unacceptable. gun traffickers should know if you traffic illegal weapons in the city of chicago you'll be spending a long time in a federal penitentiary. we cannot let these criminals be charged with mere paperwork violations. i welcome the nomination of as ry fartherin -- fardin special prosecutor and to prosecute more of these cases. we need to give law enforcement the tools and funding they need to do so. that means finally passing a federal lawm

competitive act with my friend, mr. scott, for one reason, to ensure the law of unintended consequences does not place america at a disadvantage globally. our bill simply requires financial stability oversight committee to conduct the study of the impacts implementing the credit valuation adjustment capital requirement, or c.v.a., will have on end users and u.s. financial institutions. this study is in response to the recent bossle 3 accord which is a global regulatory standard for capital requirement for banks. unfortunately they decided to exempt their own european banks for providing certain requirements. specifically, european regulators have decided to exempt transactions with sovereign pension funds and corporate counterparties which exempted. this means european banks will not have to put up capital like american banks. i have some serious questions about the impact the european exemption will have on u.s. financial institutions, consumers and larger u.s. companies. to me it will have a business advantage to european banks, european customers and european end users at the expense of a
